Ingredients Needed

ingredients needed to make a mango pineapple smoothie.

Frozen Mango and Frozen Pineapple. Using frozen fruit keeps your mango pineapple smoothie nice and cold without needing to water it down with ice. Plus, you don’t have to worry about having fresh produce on hand when you want to make this healthy smoothie recipe.

Banana. You can use fresh or frozen banana in this recipe. It helps thicken smoothies and create a smoother texture. Plus, they’re cheap, easily accessible, and packed with nutrients, antioxidants, fiber, and an excellent source of potassium. 

Unsweetened Almond Milk. The use of unsweetened almond milk (either vanilla or plain) makes this a great option for those who cannot consume dairy. Almond milk is a an easy ingredient to get, now commonly stocked in many stores. A few other perks of using unsweetened almond milk in this recipe is that it is low in carbs, low in calories, and a good source of various vitamins and minerals too.

Vanilla Greek Yogurt. Using Greek yogurt makes this smoothie nice and creamy and helps to balance out the acidity of the fruit. It also adds protein and live and active cultures to your smoothie. I personally like Oikos Triple Zero Vanilla Nonfat Greek Yogurt or Chobani Vanilla Greek Yogurt in my smoothies.

See recipe card below for a full list of ingredients and measurements.

Recipe Variations and Substitutions

  • Add protein. If you would like to add more protein to your mango pineapple smoothie, adding a serving of either plain or vanilla whey protein, plant-based protein, or collagen is a great option. Note: adding protein powder or collagen powder will thicken your smoothies, so you may want to add some additional liquid to your recipe (this is a personal preference).
  • Make it a green smoothie. Spinach is my go-to for green smoothie recipes because it has a mild taste that doesn’t overpower the flavor of the rest of the ingredients. A pineapple mango spinach smoothie would be awesome, just add 1-2 large handfuls of fresh spinach to the blender prior to blending.
  • Add ground flaxseed, chia seeds, or hemp hearts. Boost your smoothie with another nutrient rich ingredient, like ground flaxseed, chia seeds or hemp hearts. Add 1-2 teaspoons if desired.
  • Use a different liquid. If almond milk isn’t your thing, you could also use another plant-based milk of your choosing, dairy milk, coconut water, coconut milk, orange juice, or pineapple juice in this smoothie recipe. You can also use water which saves money and calories.
    • Note: changing the liquid used in your mango pineapple smoothie will change the taste of your smoothie. However, all liquids suggested will still create a good tasting smoothie.
  • Make it sweeter. If you’d prefer a sweeter smoothie, add 1-2 tablespoons of honey, pure maple syrup, or agave syrup to the recipe.

Adjusting the Texture of Your Smoothie

Everyone has a different preference when it comes to smoothie thickness and texture. Luckily, this is something you can alter easily to make it the perfect texture for you!

  • To thin out a smoothie – add more liquid to your blender.
  • To thicken a smoothie – add more frozen fruit and/or yogurt.

Note: adding more ingredients to thin or thicken your smoothie will alter the flavor. Take a sip and adjust as needed to create your perfect smoothie experience!

Expert Tips

Be sure to blend your pineapple smoothie well! Pineapple is a fruit you want to be sure to blend well in smoothies and blended drinks. Pineapple tends to get stuck on the blades of blenders, leaving stringy chunks of fruit in your otherwise delightful smoothie. You can help prevent this by removing and shaking the blender body one or two times during blending, and/or using a rubber scraper to wipe down the sides and blades during blending too.

Helpful Equipment

A good quality blender is a must for smoothies! This is the blender we are currently using, and it has been working great! This is a simple, no-frills blender at a modest price point. And the newer model has both a large basin and smaller cups for more flexibility, nice!

Recipe FAQs

Can I use fresh fruit instead of frozen fruit?

Absolutely! If you’d prefer to use fresh fruit, you will want to add some ice to your recipe to ensure your smoothie is nice and cold.

How can I add protein to my smoothie?

There are lots of ways you can add protein to a smoothie! This recipe already uses Greek yogurt. If desired, add more than the recipe calls for to increase the amount of protein. 

You can add plain or vanilla whey protein, plant-based protein, or collagen to increase protein. Note: adding protein powder or collagen powder will thicken your smoothies, so you may want to add some additional liquid to your recipe (this is a personal preference).

Adding ground flaxseed, chia seeds, and hemp seeds can add protein.

How to thicken a smoothie?

Adding more frozen fruit, banana, and yogurt can thicken a water smoothie. Adding protein powder can also help to thicken a thin smoothie.

Is pineapple and mango good for you?

Both pineapple and mango are healthy fruits to enjoy (when consumed in moderation).

Pineapple is packed with nutrients and antioxidants, is high in fiber, contains the enzyme bromelain which may aid in digestion and help with inflammation, and more!

Mangos are also packed with nutrients, are low in calories, a good source of antioxidants, and contain immune-boosting nutrients like vitamin A, several types of vitamin B, vitamin C, vitamin K, vitamin E, folate, and more.

On the down side, both of these delicious tropical fruits are relatively high in sugar (something to be especially aware of for diabetics). Due to the high amount of vitamin C in both of these fruits, eating them in excess may cause nausea, diarrhea, and heart-burn.
